Okey thanks that should do as a workaround ... VMD is just connecting
the chains now i.e. the last CA of chain A with a long straight line
across the molecule to the first CA of chain B. In the pdb file it looks
like below. Do I need to add TER lines between the chains or can I
somehow tell this to VMD?
ATOM 823 CA GLU A 275 20.231 14.612 11.662
ATOM 826 CA MET B 276 -24.147 -8.692 14.871
